You'd be forgiven for thinking you'd stepped into the grandeur and sophistication of The Great Gatsby, but this remarkable Grade I-listed building in Tooting is in fact home to... Gala Bingo. From the street, the hall looks unremarkable, but hiding inside are a wealth of treasures including an art deco cinema dating back to the 1930s (the only Grade I-listed cinema of its style). And of course, bingo and slot machines aplenty. It's a peculiar mix, but utterly fascinating. Make sure you swing by for a round or two next time you're in the area.
Gala Bingo Tooting is located at 50 Mitcham Rd, SW17 9NA and is open Monday-Thursday 10am-11pm and Friday-Sunday 10am-midnight.
